The new law giving workers the right to paid sick leave has been passed by the Oireachtas.When enacted, employees will be entitled to three days' paid sick leave in the first year of operation, rising to five days in year two, seven days in year three with employers eventually covering the cost of ten days in year four.Sick pay will be paid by employers at a rate of 70% of an employee's wage, subject to a daily maximum of €110.It can be revised over time by ministerial order in line with inflation and changing incomes.An employee must obtain a medical certificate to avail of statutory sick pay and the entitlement is subject to the employee having worked for their employer for a minimum of 13 weeks.Once entitlement to sick pay from their employer ends, employees who need to take more time off may qualify for illness benefit from the Department of Social Protection subject to PRSI contributions. www.gov.ie/en/press-release/3e3b2-all-irish-workers-will-be-entitled-to-sick-pay-for-the-first-ti... #law #hrsolutions ...

On The Tonight Show on VMTV I suggested tgat The reintroduction of supports may be warranted as Covid is impacting some businesses as much as ever and indeed we may see covid waves every 3 or 4 months, experts tell us.The WHO predicted this peak-time summer season wave and unfortunately strategic plans have not been put in place by government to help businesses and to help employers.There needs to be a long-term plan for small businesses to able to cope with the continued shockwaves of covid.Staff shortages in businesses are beginning to take their toll.

There is a double and triple whammy now because of yet another covid wave and businesses are also suffering due to inflation.Workplaces are now exploring reintroducing working team pods, social distancing in the office and the return to home working to try and curb the spread in the workplace.Many businesses will now be left with little choice but to close a certain number of days every week because they won’t be able to cover over the rosters, many have already done so.Many businesses are having to ask staff to work extra shifts to cover the roster and realising that long-term they may be looking at burnt-out employees. There is Safety, Health & Welfare issues to take into consideration and as it currently stands some hospitality employers cannot fully schedule a week’s roster without possibly breaking the law under the Organisation of Working Time Act. This is also tricky from the point of view of the employee as it may leave them working weekends and we all know employees like their share of weekends off, however it is desperate times now and the employers that are getting through this are the ones that treated their employees well.You remind yourself of the saying, “ ...
